Five minute Friday: REAL

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.

We just write without worrying if it’s just write or not.

Won’t you join us?

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:



Real, ‘is that real?’ We ask about certain brands, certain pictures, different props, but most certainly we ask ourselves, “is that person real?” can I trust her or him?

I find myself dealing that way with a certain co-worker. Every action, every word is scrutinized-is she real?

Let’s take it to a personal level… Are my actions perceived as real? Are my words perceived as real? Am I, Melanie, perceived as real?

I’m back! I promise!

Ok folks! I’m back to blogging. I’ve got an iPhone and will now be updating more frequently. I have a lot to update on. Like when I went on a family vacation for 10 days and visited 7 states. Or when I went to San Diego and stuffed my face with local food! Yummy!! Or how I attended an orchestra performance directed by John Williams! All these posts are something to look forward to! I hope you’ll check back in a few days!
